I used some of the material given to me to do this:


Raw stock from a generous Kirk!








Going to replace this crap rack and fit this space.

Some of the WORST welds I have ever seen, but they should hold for my
application.

Is that aluminum or galvanized C channel??

I sure hope it wasn't galvanized. Zinc doesn't weld worth a shit!

Galvanized. Don't worry, I ground off the galvanized parts I welded, plus welded outside in a breeze and did not inhale the fumes.

A little welding

I made my patio table levitate.

Actually this was the test lift of the hoist I made. I used a boat trailer winch and strap and mounted it in the garage attic. The final plan involves the table being lifted upside down with 4 legs holes cut in the ceiling so that the table sits up and out of the way.

I left my dome light on last night.

Was going to leave a bit early to get some tax forms and the truck was dead. Check battery voltage, zero. Put charger on battery for about 5 minutes, just clicky clicky. Damn. Tried my SV battery too, no dice. Neighbor comes by and said he seen it on at 4 am this morning and he didn't want to wake me.

Ended up pushing truck back in neutral into the street and the neighbor gave me a jump start. Made it to work. Seems like just getting to work nowadays seems to be a big PITA.

Anywho, just went out and the truck started up, so I hope I didn't fry the battery.

finished the bottom end of an 1973 mx250 i'm rebuilding. took cylinder to my bore guy and decided to rebore - it's just at the edge of wear limit. just waiting on piston now.

finished the top end of a maico 400 motor that's been on the bench FOREVER while i waited for a con rod to show up. and mounted motor in a roller. have to work on the compression release and rework the chain tensioner tomorrow. maybe fire it up sunday/monday..

dicked around with a seized linkage bolt in a 1996 yz250. got frustrated with it - letting it sit for a day or 2 then tearing the back end apart to get a better look at it.

oh and did some bolty town stuff.

A little more on my rack.





I also helped a friend mod his HF tire changer to work on his HF lift like mine.
